This was disappointing. The dishes where hit or miss. A Cornish hen and bean appetizer was bland and just generally uninteresting, a steamed bass had a weird aftertaste from the peanut sauce. A short-rib special was tasty but not particularly interesting. The standouts were a kohlrabi and hazelnut appetizer, and the Brussels sprout appetizer. Event he chocolate cake dessert was not that great. Considering the prices everything was just mediocre. The place was also really hot and we had to ask three times to turn the AC on. On the other hand our waiter was lovely and provided a great cocktail recommendation (the Hot Tin Roof).

One of my favorites anywhere, Little Park is both a neighborhood spot (for me) and excellent cuisine that never disappoints. Its wonderful on all counts. One of the city's best restaurants, hands down.

Personally don’t lime restaurants where the smell of Truffles pervades everywhere!

Not enough “basic” options .

No one asked about allergies or offered to make changes if needed.

Food came warm — should have been hotter.

The quality and creativity of this dinner was amazing. Best Brussels Sprouts ever with a smoky roasted flavor and apple cider dressing. Worth the visit just for this appetizer.
Followed with a duck entree - also delicious, accompanied with perfect flavors in the sauce: a little sweet and gently spicy. However if you have an aversion to the fat that naturally occurs in a duck you may not love this dish.
Can’t wait to try more of Little Park’s menu!

I always expect more from this place given its connection to Locanda Verde but I’m always disappointed. Living in the area I’ve been about a half dozen times each time hoping the experience will be different. The ambiance is comfortable and pleasant in that hotel dining room way. The menu looks amazing - lots of farm to table choices - great ingredients cooked with a twist. But something is always off about the food. The seasoning, the portion, etc. I took my husband there for what was meant to be a nice celebration brunch as we were getting married that evening. I had asked for an omelette prepared without salt and they put Extra salt in! My hubby is a nice guy so rather than send it back he ate my omelette and didn’t eat most of his entree. When he tasted his salmon Benedict he said it wasn’t good either. They took it off the check but I will not be returning again.

If it wad just the appetizers and entrees I would give a higher score. In fact, up to that point everything was really good. Four stars perhaps a tad better. Unfortunately my group also got dessert. I gotta say, cheese plate to me should have more than one cube of cheese... some variety would be good. Also the donuts...meh. in general, the choices were one dimensional for dessert. It just wasn't a great way to finish a meal.

We attended Little Park after a special family occasion. We were a group of 5 and had made a lunch reservation. When we arrived the hostess greeted us warmly, took our coats, and bags. Our table was ready and waiting, even though we were a bit early.
The atmosphere was very elegant, but not stuffy.
We enjoyed a wonderful bottle of champagne and a variety of cocktails.
Our lunch occurred during Restaurant Week and Little Park was participating with a great lunch menu. To our surprise there was not a vegetarian option on Restaurant Week options, but Little Park gave us a tasty beetroot risotto option.
Everything we ate was plated beautifully and a generous serving. We had plenty to try everyone's choices.
The servers were attentive and eager to help, but not overly present.
We enjoyed our leisurely lunch and would recommend this gem to anyone in the area!

We had a great brunch at Little Park while we were in New York. The appetizer salads (Kohlrabi and beet) were outstanding and interesting. The breads were delicious. Everyone in my group enjoyed their main courses. My husband had a salmon and cream cheese platter, and the salmon was fantastic. I had a baked egg and lamb dish that was unusual and very good. My daughter had an egg benedict with spinach and salmon which she really enjoyed. It was a relaxing and fun brunch close to the 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton's grave at Trinity church. A great way to spend a Sunday morning!

Overall, food is pretty salty. My palate is more on the salty side so I was surprised that I felt the food was quite salty. The staff were very kind and tried to accommodate my requests but the chef stood to his/her own palate, which I respect. My palate might have been affected by my recent sickness with cold, but I didn't have such problem with takeouts and other restaurants.

Little Park is reliably great food at reliably expensive prices. Attentive service and will happily modify dishes. Many interesting combinations; wine list limited and by the glass often a better choice.

I've been to Little Park a few times, including when it first opened but before major reviews came out. The food has always been delicious and I particularly appreciate the dishes that let the vegetables shine on their own without meat. The menu set-up has changed a little since it first opened--before it was structured to share small plates (but you could still do that); now there's more of a traditional appetizer and entrees approach. I don't know why it's easier to get reservations at LP than other Carmellini restaurants like Locanda Verde... maybe it's the location or that LP is connected to a hotel? Most recently we visited on a Friday evening and was able to reserve a table just hours before we arrived. Maybe it was before a holiday weekend so the restaurant wasn't as busy, and maybe that's also the reason that service wasn't as attentive as previous visits. Still, food was on point. The carrot dish especially stood out. Would love to visit in the summer and there's more fresh vegetables! LP is not too loud and in the main dining area, the tables are not too close to each other like many other restaurants can be. Booths are spacious and comfortable. There's also dining area in the bar, but it would have a different atmosphere depending on the crowd level at the bar.

The brussel sprouts were tasty but a little too blackened. The endive was fine. The trout was a very small portion. The chicken seemed good. We asked to share the dessert, but had no knife to cut it, and that ended up a big mess. The bread was dull. The wine was fine but overpriced. Also, beware the largely booth seating--the circular ones have very little legroom, so if unless your short, could be a very awkward seat.

Christmas eve. Small restaurant. The booth they gave us was too small for 3; I didn’t know where to put my legs. The menu is ok, smallish. Bread and butter excellent. I had the salad it was delicious, my son had the scallops, we ordered 1 extra - it was really good. And for main we had steak, very nicely presented; broccoli was yummy but the steak lacked flavor, needed a good sauce, didn’t like the one it was served with. Sorry, but the chocolate cake was not good, ice cream was good. If I lived in the neighborhood I d come back but 30 min drive no.

We love everything about Little park except of their pricing.
$20 for paper thin tuna app, $18 for grated beets (even with few balls of caviar), $23 for thinly spread covered with 5-6 (again PAPER THIN) yellow raw beets and few drops of goat cheese??? Two smallest half balls of sorbet sprinkled with few pomegranate seeds - $10??? The cheapest (not the high quality) glass of wine $16??? Total for almost vegetarian dinner for two got to over $200?????.. Seems like a bit TOO MUCH.
Yes, the food is yummy in most dishes, but not anything amazing to justify this price tag.
We left half hungry and kind of sad. From our first visit the size of the portions seems got smaller, but the prices stayed the same if not become higher.
And that's unfortunate, because we like the taste but will think twice before make a decision to return.

We arrived and sat for our 7.45 reservation by 7.45.
We got menus about 20 minutes after that. We ordered drinks at 8.20, yes 8.20 and they arrived at 8.40. A warm bottle of champagne.
The service was beyond awful, and we weren't in a hurry, we were happy to relax and chat, but 55 minutes to get a bad drink in a not busy restaurant is kinda just bad service.
Was a shame because the food was actually quite good.
